Hi dear TE friends

Place : City Aveiro

Theme:(Trip) Portugal, Aveiro(I)

To see: map view

Aveiro Center by night

Located on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, Aveiro is an industrial city with an important seaport.

Aveiro is known in Portugal for its traditional sweets, the ovos-moles and the trouxas de ovos, both made from eggs. It is sometimes called "The Portuguese Venice", because of its canals and boats that remind one of the Italian city of Venice, as the city faced similar problems when it tried to conquer the water.

A ria is a landform, often known as a drowned valley or drowned river valley. Rias are almost always estuaries. Rias form where sea levels rise relative to the land either as a result of eustatic sea level change (where the global sea levels rise), or isostatic sea level change (where the land sinks).

When this happens valleys which were previously at sea level become submerged. The result is often a very large estuary at the mouth of a relatively insignificant river (or else sediments would quickly fill the ria). The Kingsbridge Estuary is an extreme example of a ria forming an estuary disproportionate to the size of its river; no significant river flows into it at all, only a number of small streams.


I hope you like it, a big hug to all the friends of the TE
